Next year: Algebra II Online

Who Susan
Why

Since I have been writing online courses for the past two years, I am very familiar with Internet resources for Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. I have written activities to go with some of the resources. This week I would like to try to do one or more of the following:

  1. Add resources to the Algebra II tools
  2. Learn how to use Java Sketchpad, and create some Java sketches. I would really like to be able to combine sketches with Flash, and do something like I've seen on the Mathsnet site: http://www.mathsnet.net/shape/ks1desa1.html
  3. Use a digital video camera (will bring with me) to create short clips for online learning. Possible topics: geometric constructions, using algebra tiles, creating parabolas by throwing a ball for students to analyze, drawing 3-d objects on isometric dot paper...any topic that is hard to teach without a demonstration!
